User Avatar Poll by: DAWG - Official Pollster

Pollster's general comment about their poll:
I vote largely on resume. I try as much as possible to base my rankings on what teams have already have done on the field and limit as much as I can what I think will occur in the future. When I post anything please assume that it is my personal opinion and not a fact unless otherwise stated. Thank you.
